Notes: The Firestar's primary role is Heavy Combat Support. Built for the specific purpose of augmenting a Battlestar's already significant firepower, she can throw almost as much primary firepower with her kinetic weapons as a modern Battlestar and can probably overpower an older Battlestar class. Her superior armour means that she is capable of standing toe to toe with a Cylon Baseship, confident that she can win any one on one engagement. Her fewer secondary weapons means that she is vulnerable to Cylon raiders so can't stray too far away from the support of Vipers flying CAP.
